Parenting specialties and the bigger fish

Different parents excel in different ways. We all have our own specialties. Some are Super Creative with Crafts. Some are Awesome Cooks of Tasty Food. Some are Very Athletic and Sporty. You get the idea.

Kids always wanting more may not be a bad thing (or it may - it just depends)

You know the drill. You buy your kids a treat while you're at the mall and five minutes later they're begging for something more. Or you let each child have a turn at something and still someone complains that their turn was shorter than someone else's.

Kids seem to be always wanting more. Never satisfied. Always comparing and wanting things to be exactly the same and “fair.” (They're an awful lot like adults at times, aren't they?)

Must the grass always be greener?

So last night my 5-year-old son
informed me he wants out of our family. He wants to go live with
his favorite cousin.

One reason he wants to leave us is that his cousin gets everything he wants, which I know is
technically not true. However, that is my son's perception. This is
partly fueled by the fact that his cousin is three years older and
therefore his toys are inherently cooler. My son doesn't even know he
wants a certain toy until he sees his cousin has one and thinks it's
great.
